Environment Minister says GKI developers should get moving

QUEENSLAND'S Environment Minister Steven Miles says Great Keppel Island developers should get on with the job.

To secure off-shore investment and to start development of an eco-resort on the island, Tower Holdings needs a casino licence.

But the State Government says there are not enough licences.

At a forum about the Great Barrier Reef on Friday as part of World Environment Day, Mr Miles called for the developers to get cracking.

"The developers on Great Keppel Island have development approval," he said. "Our message to them is to get started and get creating those jobs we all want them to create.

"The current development has approval as it stands and we would encourage them to go ahead."

He reiterated Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk's comments about how there were only three casino licences and if one of the current proponents did not proceed with a casinos, there could be an opening.

If that occurred, he said there would be a process for other proponents to apply.
